If a button or switch doesn't work on your iPhone or iPad, here are some steps that can fix the problem. If they don't, you'll need to schedule a repair. First of all, we would like to analyze why the iPad or iPhone home button was falling out after the display screen was broken or replaced. If you have replaced a new iPad or iPhone screen, which is not an original new screen, you must confirm that the size of the home eyelet is exactly the same as the original screen.
Some of the iPad screens and digitizers manufactured by third parties may have errors in the grommet of the house or other parts. In addition, the iPad home button is a combination with the flex cable ribbon. When you assemble the home button on the screen digitizer, you need to make sure that the home button and the flex cable ribbon adhere tightly under the digitizer button. It requires us to glue a special glue and an adhesive tape.
On the other hand, if you have to replace the home button at the same time, you'd better choose the new original iPad home button to replace it. Some of the iPad home buttons manufactured by third parties do not have the exact size of the iPad screen hole. This will work in any situation where your iPhone's home button does not work. If the home button on your iPad or iPhone doesn't work and you want to wait for the repairs to take place, here are FOUR key solutions that will help you until you can repair the device.
The Touch-ID function of the home button also does not work well if the finger is wet or if the home button is dusty. It is possible that the home button is broken and needs repair. If that is the case (or you think so), contact Apple Support or an Apple service provider to have it repaired. If you've passed all the troubleshooting steps and your iPad's home button still doesn't work, it's time to explore repair options.
If isopropyl was used to remove the adhesive, it is possible that the home button has become wet and caused the home button to not work until it dries. It is possible that the home button is broken and needs repair, usually the home button holder becomes loose or the digitizer flex cable is twisted or damaged in some way. If the home button on your iPhone started having problems after replacing the battery, it is very likely that the contacts on the home button (there are two gold contacts that are shorted) were not properly placed. If the previous steps didn't do much good for your iPhone's home button, it's probably time to carry out a professional repair.
So, to help those whose iPad home button is broken without any signs and look for do-it-yourself ways before sending it to the Apple Store, I listed the following fixes to make the iPad home button not work. You may just want to repair the start button instead of paying for third-party software that doesn't even fix the problem.
